What are the Dangers of Mold?

Mold is beneficial for the environment, but it’s not the least bit beneficial for people. While the type and severity of health effects resulting from mold exposure varies from person to person, exposure to indoor molds commonly results in allergic reactions including nasal and sinus congestion, headaches, skin and eye irritation, breathing difficulty, and upper respiratory tract infections. Mold is particularly dangerous to groups with a higher sensitivity to mold, such as infants, elderly people, individuals with allergies and/or asthma, and immunocompromised patients.
